The sudden decision of the Ministry of Human Resource Development to fill 50 per cent of the seats, hitherto reserved for students of other States in the National Institutes of Technology, on an all-India merit basis, will eliminate the chances of Tamil Nadu students getting admission to the NITs elsewhere in the country, say school principals.
The Ministry informed the Central Counselling Board (AIEEE–2008) about the change only on June 13. The principals fear the new system raises the possibility of the 50 per cent seats in 20 NITs being filled with students of some States that have been dominating the national ranking in the All-India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) over the years. Furthermore, they reckon, the awareness of the examination is inadequate in Tamil Nadu.
The States that lag in the AIEEE will have to content themselves with the 50 per cent of seats earmarked in the NITs for their own students. The decision has come as a shock at a time when all NITs are increasing the number of seats to implement 27 per cent reservation for the OBC students.
What rankles them is that the Central Government has not honoured its promise to safeguard the interests of States when it converted the Regional Engineering Colleges into the National Institutes of Technology.
In fact, the Centre was allowed to take over the Regional Engineering College here a few years ago only after it promised that the pattern of admission would be retained.
The decision must be based on the fact that the Centre meet the entire funding for the NITs as it does for the Indian Institutes of Technology, sources in the Central Counselling Board (AIEEE–2008) told The Hindu.
“There is no justification for the timing of the decision. Tamil Nadu students who have devoted their time and energy to securing seats in the NITs have been caught unawares. Had they known the decision earlier, they would have intensified their preparations since securing all-India ranks is quite a tough task,” says A. Rajagopal, a full-time trainer of IIT-JEE and AIEEE.

Assuming that 1 minute per payment, only 360 payments can be made approximately, but the students strength is 900 approx., balance 540 parents will be in trouble. How is this possible?
Similarly for Standard IV to V students school fees should be paid on the 18/19th June 2008 nearly 600 students fees should pay in 360 minutes
Hope the Principal think and acts fast. -- RPF

My son- a student of RSK obtained more than 380/500 is denied computer science, I understand that nearly 7 non-rsk students has been admitted much to the violation of the Ruling by our High Court, will the PTA, BHEL, CBSE Authorities swing into action to set things right in RSK. The Court's ruling is crystal clear that priority should be given only to its students and no cut off mark should be prescribed. Then why the principal is deviating from the Court order.
They should furnish the particulars of students they have admitted to Standard XI They should furnish the particulars of students admitted to Standard XI
The Madras High Court on Monday directed all Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools in Tamil Nadu to furnish, in two weeks, the particulars of students they admitted to Standard XI.
The directive was given by the First Bench of Chief Justice A.P. Shah and Justice P. Jyothimani on a public interest litigation petition against `weeding out' of Standard X students by their own schools while granting admission to Standard XI.
The petition, filed by educationist S. Anandalakshmy, highlighted the practice of CBSE schools arbitrarily fixing cut-off marks to weed out their Standard X students.
The Bench also directed the CBSE to ensure that all of its schools in Tamil Nadu complied with the court's directive, issued on April 27, that issuing transfer certificates to Standard X students within the same school and readmitting them to Standard XI was against the rules.
Concurring with a set of guidelines furnished in court by Assistant Solicitor-General P. Wilson, the Bench held that students from other school could be considered for admission after accommodating students of the same school.
Schools should conduct no admission test for their own students, and no school should prescribe any cut-off marks for admission to Standard XI or for allotment of subjects.
All CBSE schools in the State should comply with these guidelines. The five Chennai-based schools that had been arraigned as respondents in the petition should file all particulars about Standard XI admissions before June 8.
Dr. Anandalakshmy said the practice was the manifestation of rampant commercialisation of education and an anti-thesis of what the CBSE proclaimed and repeatedly emphasised.
The Board said the CBSE schools would violate rules if they treated their own Standard X students as fresh candidates for admission to Standard XI and issued transfer certificates before "re-admitting" them to Standard XI.
Note - This is the exact legal position as decided by our High Court, Chennai and this is the paper report of- THE HINDU- dated 5th June 2007, Hence parents can take up the issue with the CBSE if you are aggrieved --RPF
